       Java Applets for Power and Sample Size - Lenth



  The Early Algebra Project by TERC and Tufts University
  examines young learners as they express general
  relationships among numbers and quantities through written
  notation, tables, and diagrams.

  The Publications section of their site offers abstracts and
  full files in PDF format. Articles include classroom

  Russ Lenth at The University of Iowa has developed a set of
  Java applets to use in a statistics course. Each applet
  provides a graphical interface for studying the power of one
  or more tests. They include sliders (convertible to
  number-entry fields) for varying parameters, and a simple
  provision for graphing one variable against another.
  Select one of the applets from the list, including:

    - CI for one proportion
    - Test of one proportion
    - Test comparing two proportions
    - CI for one mean
    - One-sample t test (or paired t)
    - Two-sample t test (pooled or Satterthwaite)
    - Balanced ANOVA (any model)
